my favorite mirror

This weekend Paper Stories was in Madison, WI selling stuff at the High Noon Christmas Craftacular sponsored by the Glitter Workshop. We had a blast and sold a ton of stuff. We sold out of these cute little silkscreened gift tags we had made. We don't have a photo of them yet, but when we do, we will post them. We have to reprint them in time for Renegade in 2 weeks.
One of the highlights of our weekend was making friends with the folks at the neighboring booth. They are an awesome couple, Matt & Kellee, and they own a little business called My Favorite Mirror. They make little pocket mirrors. Some have unique images and are one of a kind but they also have the 'Illustrator Series'. They have licensed the artwork of some of the best young illustrators out there for their mirrors. I don't know that I would need a bunch of little mirrors per se, but would certainly want a bunch for the artwork. Heck, buy a bunch, paint your wall with magnetic paint (yes it exists) and instant gallery!

We are mostly excited because Kellee & Matt will also be our neighbors at the Renegade Holiday Sale. Yippee. We are already making plans with them for a monster Scrabble game! If you are in Chicago, stop by and visit us both.
